Slouching Ih n habit which many of
our women mid girls hnvo contracted.
In sumo Instances it is affected for tho
purpose of attaining n certain polso of
tho bod) n poise which has been de
creed by recent fnshlon authorities
with little regard for hygiene. The
ennsequenco la, In many enses, mis
placed urgaus ami Inability to with
stand physical exertion; these oontu
ally lend to premature decay.
While slouching, from the fashion
standpoint, Is but u passing mode, It Is
n dangerous fancy to Indulge In, for
when the tlmo comes, which It Is bound
to do, for uu upright pose, some of the
organs may have become, weakened to
such n degree that they will not re
spond to tho call,
As a means of attaining an upright
poso nnd to assist nature In regaining
its normal condition I would suggest
tho following exercise:
Standing erect; feet slightly sepa
rated, anus at sldo, begin by raising
up the shoulders and throwing them
back; repeat this movement eight or
ten tlmos. Now raise tho shoulders
und with tho muscles cause them to ro
tato; two minutes should be consumed
In rotating.
Next join the hands at back and
raise tho shoulders high; while hold
ing this poso the bands still clasped
nro slowly moved up the back as fnr aa
ono possibly can, held so for a few sec
onds and then lowered. This move
ment should be repented eight or ten
times. Kansas City Btar.

Gin and Water for Black Satin or Silk
To Keep Light Woolen Dresses
In Beit Condition.
Among the methods of cleaning
black Ratiu or silk is a curious old
process known us tho gin and water
euro. A Hpongu dlpiicd In u mixture
of gin and water Is used to remove tho
shlno and clean It thoroughly, the'silk
being Ironed While still wet.
In order to keep light woolen dresses
nnd skirts In good condition and free
them from dust every woman should
keep a cat o' nine lis with which to
flagellate the gowns used for street
wear This Instrument is made of a
short stick, to thu end of which narrow
strips of leather are attached With It

An old fashioned msthod of cleaning
white kid gtuvcH consists In rubbing
them with white custito Boap. Tho
soap Is merely dipped In water nnd
then rubbed over the linger tips, tho
gloves first having been drawn over
the hands. The soap is then rubbed
off with a piece of hoft liuimel, the re
milt being Mulllclently satisfactory to
ennblo the, gloes to be worn onco
more without undergoing cleaning
with benzine.
A way of cleaning white cloth or
serge that most people overlook is to
rub spots with French chalk, then
cover the garment with the chalk and
lay It away for soNernl dus. When
taken out it needs only to be shaken
to be quite clean and reudy fur wear.
